diplomacy is to emphasize respect for islam in the wake of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. in may of 2008, president bush went beyond just offering support. after an american soldier used a koran for target practice, president bush actually apologized to iraqi prime minister nouri al maliki. >> he apologized for that in the sense the that he said, we take it very seriously, we were concerned about their reaction, we wanted them to know that the president knew that this was wrong and that the commanders in the field had publicly reprimanded the soldier and removed him from iraq. >> this was always one of the most admirable dimensions of the bush administration. and a real achievement. after 9/11, it was entirely possible that the country could have lapsed into anti-muslim sentiment. the bush administration legitimately fought to keep that from happening, and they largely succeeded. let's turn to congressman keith ellison, who was also the first muslim member of congress. congressman, good to have you here tonight. >> thank you. thanks for having me. >> the bush administration understood th

casualties of the iraq and afghanistan wars are laid to rest. they were honoring the victims of flight 93 and their families. biden drew upon his experience with the loss of his wife and his infant daughter 30 years ago. >> my hope for you all is that as every year passes, the depth of your pain recedes and you find comfort as i have, genuine comfort in recalling their smile, her laugh, their touch. >> in wisconsin vice presidential candidate paul ryan met with first responders and members of the wisconsin air national guard. and mitt romney spoke to a conference of the national guard association in reno, nevada. >> i would normally speak to a gathering like this about the differences between my and my opponent opponent's plans for military and for our national security. there is a time and place for that. but this day is not that. >> unfortunately, not all republicans were on the same page as the candidates. several right wingers used 9/11 as a tool to attack president obama. john mccain still bitter about his defeat four years ago went on a rant about president obama's foreign policy ex
intrinsic goodness and it's a vision that to some degree we just tried. remember when we went into iraq and we were told that the people of iraq would know we were doing it for the right reasons and we would be greeted as liberators and there would be flowers and candy and we would use overwhelming force at the beginning? it was called shock and awe back then. but then we'd be out of there pretty quickly. it didn't work out that well. and one of the guys who's most responsible for it not working out that well was don rumsfeld who, hey, what a coincidence, just came to romney's defense on these comments today saying on a radio show, it was, quote, the responsible thing to do to make this argument. and this gets back to the real underlying point romney was making in his statement. romney said he made that statement to show there was a real foreign policy divide between him and the obama administration. but what that statement really was about was a divide between romney and the people on the ground. the press release romney's attacking came from folks trapped in the egyptian embassy feari
an end to the war in iraq which was a campaign promise. if you're looking for honesty about these issues, folks, you were simply at the wrong convention. >> we can't afford to cost our friends and allies from latin america to europe to asia to the middle east and especially in israel, a nation under existential threat, to doubt america's leadership. >> we cannot be reluctant to lead, and you cannot lead from behind. >> his trillion dollar cuts to our military will eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs and also put our security at greater risk. >> last friday, mitt romney brought up the president of the united states, his birth certificate. they can't get away from that, but wait a minute, it was just a joke. but the day after the republican convention, speakers lined up to question president obama's americanness. is he really an american? president obama has been president of the united states for nearly four years and republicans are still questioning his values as an american citizen. it's the twisted version of the truth and it was embraced by everybody in the room. >> barack obama
